Juvenile Delinquency in Williamson, TN
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Williamson County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Tennessee often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2016, a total of 1550 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Williamson County. Of that total, 62% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 955 court cases. Another 9% were dependency cases that accounted for 137 of the juvenile cases.
